Considering what we’ve read so far regarding Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s ridiculous file sizes, can things get any worse? Yes, yes they can – embarrassingly so, in fact. Developer Infinity Ward has released a new patch to fix an ugly graphics bug (weapon model corruption) that measures in at a ridiculous 66 GB.

What’s interesting is that only Xbox One players have been made to suffer. This is due to an “unforeseen bug” with Microsoft’s patch delivery process, which requires users to redownload files they already have. The PS4 and PC patches only weigh in at 1.2 GB and .88 GB/1.83 GB, respectively.

Download Size:

PS4: 1.2GB

PC: 0.88GB (F2P only) and 1.83GB (MW/MW owners)

Xbox One: 66.3GB (due to an unforeseen bug with the Microsoft patch delivery process, this download requires Xbox users to redownload files they already have, but it does NOT impact the overall install size. We’re working closely with Microsoft to ensure future updates are smaller in size.)

Here are the file sizes Xbox One players can expect to see after downloading today’s update:

Warzone Only: 99.5GB

Full Game (WZ/MW): (up to) 183GB

Here’s the rest of the patch notes:

  • Fix for weapon models (sights and weapons picked up) corrupting on screen
  • Fix for an error that could occur when selecting “Play Again” option in Warzone
  • Fixed a bug where players could use the rope ascender through a closed door in Downtown
  • Fixed an issue where the world model of the Common AUG was appearing invisible in Warzone
  • The increased map counts in our playlists caused some maps to not appear in playlist rotations. To help them appear more regularly, we’re removing the following maps from each mode listed below:
    • Headquarters – Removing Arklov Peak and Shipment
    • Kill Confirmed -Removing Aniyah Incursion
    • Cyber Attack – Removing Aniyah Incursion
    • Hardpoint – Removing Piccadilly and Aniyah Incursion
    • Search and Destroy – Removing Rust

  1. Your headline is deceptive.
    Only XBox is so affected.
    PC patch is 800 MB.
    Come on, stop being so sensational.
